Anesthesiology is a discipline within the practice of medicine specializing in the medical management of patients who are rendered unconscious or insensible to pain and emotional stress during surgical and certain medical procedures. It involves preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative evaluation and treatment procedures.

  • HBOT Clinic - Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen at a higher than atmospheric pressure.

  • Pain Management Clinic - Pain is the second most common reason people visit a doctor. Usually it is a protective sign warning of disease or injury. However, when pain persists or worsens despite treatment of disease or recovery from injury, it may become an overwhelming and confusing disability.

  • Preoperative Clinic - Preoperative clinics have been shown to decrease operating room delays and cancellations. One mechanism for this positive economic impact is that medical issues are appropriately identified and necessary information is obtained, so that knowledge of the patients' status is complete before the day of surgery.
